Over the weekend Sprint dropped the price of the iPhone 4S to $149, down $50, reports “AllThingsD” (http://macte.ch/bSumD). It’s apparently a Sprint promotion, “but with Apple’s blessing.”

“The move comes ahead of what is expected to be the introduction of a new iPhone as soon as next month. Apple is planning a media event for the week of Sept. 9,” notes “AllThingsD.”
